So you just want to know how to exit configuration mode?

No I know the control commands to exit.  If possible when I log into configuration mode I wanted to stop the "Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z." message from being shown.  I used no console logging command (or something of that sort) to turn off the console messages when I log out of configuration mode.  

Part of the IOS and no was to turn off the display of "Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z." upon configuration mode entry?

You can't disable or edit the Configure terminal message..

The only way get around that would be configure command menus or privilege/aaa commands to make configure commands accessable without going into conf t.

Why do you need the message to disappear?

I started looking at this as when exiting Configuration Mode I was having issue with console messages breaking my commands.  I used one of the synchronize logging commands to resume my command on the next line and eventually shut their display off all together.  While I was adjusting things I figure if it was possible I’d shut that one off as well since the message wasn't helping me in any way.  Not a requirement though.

If its the logging messages your having problems with you can do a couple things

From conf t, You can disable logging entirely (probably not recommended) with no logging on
Or you can just disable console messages with: no logging console

You can also buffer the log messages with logging buffered 7
then  you can view them with show log

I think that may have been what I did.  

Well if there isn't a straight forward way to hide "Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z." without have to setup a workaround to access the configuration modes command outside of Configuration Mode; I'm all set.
